Grilling is great, but for a restaurant-quality sear, nothing beats a cast iron pan! Here's a quick how-to on our favorite method for perfect steak:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes. When it reaches the right temperature, water droplets will vanish on the surface.

Brush your skillet with oil and add your steak. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Flip after 2 minutes and sear an additional 2 minutes.

Using a an oven mitt, place skillet in oven. For a 1.5 inch steak, bake for 4 minutes for a medium steak.

Remove from oven and let it rest for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
